Nice little trailer! I don't know if I like the fact there is no front rack or toeboard or whatever you call it. I like to have something to keep stuff from rolling off the front! :oops:
Nice truck too! :)

Isn't that why you use straps? :P

The trailer looks nice and all, but you got the wrong one. It needs to be about twice as long and have a gooseneck. When you swap this one for the one I described, let me know. I can come pick it up anytime that works for you :wink:

I went with this model mainly for storage reasons. It's just a toy hauler for my 340 Duster, quads, dirt bikes, etc. It only gets used a few times a year and I have limited space to store it. I built a shed in the backyard to keep it under and it it was designed for exactly this size trailer:

Straps don't do any good when you are loading it and it keeps going! :shock:

I like the gooseneck too. But then, I haul tractors, the good green ones!

it's funny that i grew up on ratty red ones but here lately i've been looking for an old orange one(ac) to restore. seems like the only old restorable tractors down here are high crop ih's. could have a lot to do with the sugarcane.

btw, ace, didnt mean to hijack the thread. thats one FINE trailer. featherlite has made the best trailers for quite some time. whether your hualing cars, horses, or furniture its hard to beat them. they sure do carry a healthy price tag though.

only bad thing is all the glare of that shiny deck, to help you out i'll trade you my 20' wood deck car hauler :lol: . always looking to help another 1stgen member :roll:
